The Tammy Howl, a magazine for the alumnae as well as the
students of Gulf Park College, has three co-editors for the 1968-69
school year. Since the Tammy Howl is published three times a year,
each editor has taken the responsibility of editing one issue. Cathy
Latham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy W. Latham of Columbia, Ten-
nessee, is the chief editor for the December issue. Taking the editor
position for the May issue is LeMoine Otjen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
W. J. Otjen, Jr., of Enid, Oklahoma. Diane Stewart, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. G. H. Stewart, of Florence, South Carolina, is the chief edi-
tor of the August issue.
The Tammy Howl is extremely lucky to have Mrs. Mary Black-
well, who is originally from Jackson, Mississippi, but now makes her
home in Long Beach, for its sponsor. She not only teaches here at Gulf
Park, but also at Jefferson Davis Junior College.
The editors and the sponsor, along with a very enthusiastic
staff, are working to create an enjoyable Tammy Howl for everyone.

It has been most gratifying to receive such good reports
on the aptitudes and attitudes of the students on campus this
year; I wish to congratulate you.
Special thanks go to the Sophomores for the mature
leadership which they have shown since the beginning of the
year. The Panhellenic Council gave a great deal of time to
their sororities and moved away from the high school "Hell
day" to the collegiate "help day." The new class and club officers
were very wisely selected and are aiming toward excellence.
The Faculty of your college is the best qualified one that
I have seen in my tenure at Gulf Park. I can assure you that
they are very interested in doing everything possible to prepare
you for your role in life.
We are making every attempt to modernize the curricu-
la and the physical plant. It is our hope that we will be able
to continue the renovations of Hardy Hall this summer and
that you will be one of the lucky ones to get a "new" room.
Judging from the good beginning we have made thus far,
I have every reason to believe that this will be the best year in
the history of Gulf Park College.
Marine Lt. William W. Riggs,
whose wife lives in Pass Christian,
Miss., and who is fighting in the
jungles of South Vietnam around
Phu Bai, wanted everybody to
know about his first wedding an-
niversary. He arranged to have

Hwy. 90 at Pass Christian. Riggs
is with K Co., Third Battalion,

former Sydney Elaine Jones of
New Orleans and Pass Christian.
She is a graduate of Gulf Park
College, Long 1 Beach. They have
a two-month-old son.

STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
As you view the wind-swept shores in front of Hardy
Hall you know that you have made the right choice. Stepping
through the gates a feeling of warmth sweeps in. It is as
though a voice were saying, "Welcome, we have been waiting
for you." The arms of the Friendship Oak reach out and take
The year of 1968-69 I feel will be one of Gulf Park's
greatest. With a great deal of high hopes, enthusiasm, coop-
eration, and endless energy and a group of girls with new
ideas and concern, I feel that the student body can progress
a long way in accomplishing its expected goals.
My fondest wish is that through our unified efforts and
many experiences we will have benefited from being on the
campus and that Gulf Park will be a better college by
reason of our having passed this way.
Welcome, and the best of luck to you all!

Dear Col. Wink:
Maybe I shouldn't write you to-
day seeing that it is Friday, the
13th. I found a short newspaper
article and thought I would send
it to you. It's sort of weird as
compared to a "military view."
How have you been? Still eating
those apples for lunch? I think
of you quite often, Col. Wink; and
I miss Gulf Park so very much.
Really I wish I were there now

This summer I met a man
named Valkenburg, who is a world
renowned geographer, at the Phi
Theta Kappa Institute. I com-
mented to him and Mrs. Nosal,
along with several others, that he
reminded me of you — just like
a great big "teddy bear." Of
course, I never heard the end of it.
I thought he was a wonderful man,
an excellent lecturer, just like the
man he reminded me of — you.
I think of you and GPC so
often, especially when I see all
the other girls up here from
school — Linda Wills, Judy Grose-
close, Kathleen Keiter, Ellen Mott,
Lucy Carol Johnson and Carolyn
Kirby. Patti Gesler is now an air-
line stewardess. Sandy Shoemaker

gency) last week, but she is doing

As tradition serves, the new
school year began with a dance

sent to boys attending Jefferson

and the Seabee's Base. Tables
were set up around the school
auditorium and the stage was
transformed into a band stand.

was converted into a teenage dis-

The next school dance was held
on October 19. This party seemed
to have a better turn out than the
first one and the atmosphere was
even more perfect for a night of
fun and dance.
The officers at Keesler have ar-
ranged to invite Gulf Park to a
dance every two weeks. A bus is
sent to pick up those girls at-
tending. The dress is casual. Most
of the girls really seem to enjoy
these dances, although they say
that they out-number the boys.
All of the girls are anticipat-
ing the coming Thanksgiving and
Christmas dances. Both are to be
held the weekend before the holi-
This year is going to be really
great at Gulf Park and we, the
students, intend to make the
coming dances the best Gulf Park
has ever had!!

A year of long anticipated ex-
citement and growth has begun
with a bang in the new Retail
Merchandising Department at Gulf
Park. On Wednesday night, Sep-
tember 18, a delightful dinner was
held at the Broadwater Marina in
order that the enrolled students
and faculty participating in the
program might get acquainted.
During the month of October,
the Merchandising students were
still on the go. Sophomore stu-
dents in the department, under
the direction of Miss Helen Pick-
iing, were responsible for carrying
out the fashion, show in Assembly
on October 2 entitled "Self Real-
ization Through Clothes." On Oc-
tober 25 the twelve Merchandis-
ing students and chaperones, Mrs.
Bagwell and Miss Brock, depart-
ed for Dallas to attend one of the
largest apparel markets in the
world. The trip consisted of five
days of exciting experiences which
were both fun-filled and reward-
ing. Other points of interest seen
through guided tours were Nei-
man-Marcus, the city of Houston,
and the Astrodome.
Selling internships began on
November 18 and will continue
through December 20. Each stu-
dent will work on a full-time basis
of forty paid hours per Kveek.
This actual on-the-job experience
is vital to one who wishes to enter
the retail business. The following
local stores are participating:
Brumfield's, Dorothy Brown Shop,
Ellis Salloum's. Fasold's, Gayfer's,
Godchaux, Ideal Shop, La Bou-
tique, Northrop's, Penney's, Purple
Lantern, and Shamis'.
An employee whose personal ap-
pearance and manners are such
that she will be an asset wherever
she works, is a must. Therefore,
a Personal Appearance Clinic is
provided so that there will be an
emphasis on good grooming, pos-
ture, and proper etiquette. Since
a cultural background is also es-
sential in business and community
life, the students attend special
programs, plays and operas in
New Orleans and on the Coast.

THE MIRACLE WORKER
When dramatized by William
Gibson the rebirth of Helen Kel-
ler becomes a very demanding
play for the .students of Gulf
Park. The Miracle Worker is the
remarkable, true story of a deaf,
dumb and blind child who through
the actions of her teacher, Annie
Sullivan, is brought into the nor-
mal world. Presented on Novem-
ber 20, 21, 22 and 23 under the di-
rection of Miss Helen Picking, The
Miracle Worker brought well
earned praises to the drama de-
The opening scenes depict Helen
Keller's infant sickness which
causes her disabilities. Helen's
parents, Capt. and Mrs. Keller,
are ably played by Mr. James
Maxwell and Melissa Huston.
After many years of useless dis-
hearting searching for help for
the tantrumes Helen, vividly por-
trayed by Lynn Coleman, a teach-
er is hired. The only person who
is able to "unlock the little safe
with the unknown treasure inside"
Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan, is
personified by Patti Schrader.
The early rehearsals could eas-
ily have been mistaken as sequent
ces from Batman. The slam-BANG,
Pow, Zip, - Zot knock down drag-
out struggles resulted in enumer-
able bruises for both Pati and
Lynn. For realism the fights be-
tween Helen and her teacher had
to be actual blows which the ac-
tors often felt through their pad-
ding. When The Miracle Worker
was first produced in October of
1959, there was much publicity
about the realism used, even dur-
ing rehearsals of the fight scenes

As there were four men in the
early life of Helen Keller so were
there four in the lives of the cast
for The Miracle Worker. Mr. Jim
Maxwell who had the male lead
as Capt. Keller is an attorney for
the Employment and Securities
Division of the State of Miss. His
wife is the former Gulf Park
music teacher Miss Archer. They
reside in Gulfport with a five year
old son. Mr. Maxwell has partici-
pated in dramatic productions
while in college at Ole'Miss, the
Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts and
the Gulfport Little Theatre. He
has portrayed Colonel Pickering
in My Fair Lady; and Capt. Cook
in The Barretts of Wimpole Street.
He also had roles in The Moon
Is Blue, Student Prince, Teahouse
of the August Moon, and one prev-
ious experience at Gulf Park in
The Merry Wives of Windsor. Mr.
Maxwell says he very much en-
joys being in Gulf Park produc-
tions because of the excellent di-
Mr. Edward M. Craig has seen
most of the Gulf Park dramatic
presentations and thinks it is now
nice to be in one. Mr. Craig played
the role of Mr. Anaganos but be-
tween scenes he kept an eye on
his 12 year old daughter Maiy
who also had a part in The Mir-
acle Worker. Besides Mary he has
two sons and four grandchildren.
While living in Pass Christian Mr.
Craig has participated in the
Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts as
Edward Barrett in The Barretts of
Wimpole Street, the Gulf Coast
Little Theatre as Patsy in Three
Men On a Horse and the Bay St.
Louis Theatre as Petrovin in An-
astasia. Being 1 an Engineer for
General Electric Company has
given Mr. Craig the opportunity
for travel and thereby permitted
him to be active in theatres in
Denver, California, New York and
The part of James Keller was
filled by a young Keesler Air
Force Officer, Tom Merchant. He
graduated from Milton College in
Wisconsin with a BA in theatre
and continued his studies there
for one more year in graduate
school before joining the Air
Force as a newswriter at the Of-
fice of Information. Tom was in
many college productions, and also
in summer stock at the Green
Ram Theatre of Wisconsin. Mr.
Merchant said, "After once leav-
ing college and joining the Air
Force it is fun to get back to
college life." He feels that this is
his world because it is young and
alive. He thought The Miracle
Worker was a good opportunity
for him, especially at an exciting;
college like Gulf Park. Tom's wife
is now teaching high school Eng-
lish and Tom hopes to joini her
in the profession by teaching
drama at the college level as soon
as he leaves the Air Force.
Bobby Johnson, age 7, from the
second grade at Jeff Davis Ele-
bentary, son of Dean and Mrs.
Johnson, represented Percy, a
young negro servant of the Kel-
lers. Bobby's former experience
entails a part in last year's Christ-
program where he had to kick
Coca. He feels his part in The
Miracle Worker was hard because
he had to appear in four different
scenes. In one scene he had to
watch them bring a ladder to get
Annie out of her locked room.
Bobby can't read yet but he says
he had no problem learning his
lines, just problems in saying
them loud enough. Mr. Johnson
seemed to like it best when he
could go to the back of the audi-
torium and play with a brigfht
orange rubber ball.
If by any chance one wandered
into the speech workshop and
found a dimly lighted room with
checkered clothed tables, heard
the sipping of cokes and the
munching of popcorn, one had
arrived at Gulf Park's "in crowd '

Music Departments were present-
ing its annual review which this
year was entitled WRITHE FIVE.

Gulf Park's theatrical group,
Jet Maskers, has been busy this
year. Their past two stage produc-
tions, Rive Five and the Miracle
Worker, were tremendous succes-
ses (especially at Keesler). But
that is not all! ! Under the super-
vision of their sponsors, Mrs.
Boyd and Miss Picking, the group
is planning a trip to New Orleans
to see a live stage production in
January. They are also planning
a Christmas party where the
members can display their talents
in various skits.
On November 12, the fabulous

guest at a Jet Maskers meeting

been impossible without the direc-
tion and assistance of Mrs. Juli-
anne Boyd, Miss Helen Picking,
Mrs. Dot Merdinger and Mr. Don-
ald Christmas. The Jet Maskers'
Club sold refreshments, painted
scenery, altered costumes and
other various things any produc-
tion would call for.
Mrs. Boyd felt the combination
of drama sketches with song and
dance gave the girls a chance to
bone up on their acting and the
student body an idea of the ac-
tiveness of the group. If WRITHE

is to come, Gulf Park has great
expectations for the coming sea-

this fall by the Spanish dances of
Teresa Torkanouwky and the
music of her guitarist, Jim Woods,
of New Orleans; Teresa delighted
her audience with the presenta-
tion of four spirited dances. These
were variations of classical and
Flamenco dances: the Jeta, a
peasant folk dance; the Soleares,
a more solemn dance; the Aleg-
rias, a gay dance of rapid foot-
work; and the Sevillia which was
done in classical form. She was
accompanied in three of these
dances by Jim's guitar. The classi-
cal form was accompanied by pi-

The week of Rush began at 7
o'clock the night of September 23
•when the student body split into
three sections and went to their
first informal parties. The girls,
upon arriving at Hardy, were
greeted by Kappa Chi; at Eliza-
beth by Delta Alpha; and at Lloyd
by Sigma Psi. After the girls
were introduced to the officers and
other actives, they then proceeded
to fill out information sheets. The
rest of the time was spent talking
to the actives and enjoying the
refreshments while looking through
the scrapbooks and over the a-
wards won the preceding year.
The same procedure took place
again when the girls went to
their second and last rush party
for that night.
Tuesday night followed the same
schedule as Monday night with the
changing of the sororities to Delta
Chi in Hardy, Theta Alpha in
Elizabeth, and Gamma Psi in
Lloyd. Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday nights were devoted to the
sororities' skits, performed in the
auditorium and speech workshop.
On Wednesday night, Delta Alpha
carried out the theme of "Hey,
Look Us Over," playing several
visiting young 1 men looking over
the girls on Gulf Park campus,
who came to the conclusion that
the Delta Alpha girls were the
best. Theta Alpha also carried
the theme that night of "There's
Nothing Fishy About Theta Al-
pha." They showed how the ac-
tives opened up their hearts in a
lively, jovial, frolicsome way to
the rushees by trying to make
them feel a part of the group.
Thursday night Gamma Psi enter-
tained in "Hernando's Hideaway"
with the Roaring 20s set in a
scene of ragtime and blues. "Wel-
come to Deltachisia Land," the
theme of Delta Chi portrayed the
first few days of a college girl and
how she decided on Delta Chi as
the sorority of her choice. Friday
night brought with it Sigma Psi
carrying out the theme of the
perfect isle in the South Pacific,
"Sigma Isle," where some college
girls found out all about college
life and what a sorority really
means. Kappy Chi brought rush
week to a close as its actives
acted out sisterhood, fun, know-
ledge, friendship, and the inner
treasure by their theme, "En-
chanted Isle of Kappa Chi." So
ended a wonderful week, and the
starting of many friendships.
Rat Day was held at Gulf Park
College on October 12, 1968.
Many proud rushees, attired in
their grubbiest old clothes with
their hair braided up into count-
less pigtails, became actives of
their chosen sorority.
Each of the six sororities, Delta
Alpha, Delta Chi, Kappa Chi,
Gamma Psi, Sigma Psi, and
Theta Alpha, under the Panhel-
Ienic Council, planned various
"jobs" for their pledges to do.
The Delta Alphas had the respon-
sibility of cleaning out the Y-Hut
along with the Delta Chiis scrub-
bing out the new Panhellenic
House. Gamma Psis had the
pleasure of cleaning out the Fresh-
man Fountain with toothbrushes,
While the Kappa Chis picked up
all the acrons under the Friend-
ship Oak. While all this was tak-
ing place, the Sigma Psis swept
the entire driveway, and the Theta

eighty girls who had become ac-

This closed for another year, the
anticipation and excitement of Rat
Gulf Park was privileged to
hear NBC's chief Far Eastern
correspondent, Wells Hangen,
speak for more than an hour on
the overall situation in the Far
East, on Monday, October 21, 1968.
Following Mr. Hangen's address
pertinent questions by the audi-
ence centered not only on Viet-
nam, but also other countries, in-
cluding Red China, Thailand, Ber-
lin, Israel, and Czechoslavakia.
Mr. Hangen, who has returned
recently to the United States
from a three and a half year duty
tour in Asia, cited hope for solv-
ing the war in Vietnam, but stated
there could be no decisive victory
for either side. Both he felt,
could reconcile issues without
suffering too great a loss.
Mr. Hangen also dispelled the
domino theory and stated flatly
that the United States must take
cognizance of its abilities in the
light of its commitments over the
world, make an evaluation and
act accordingly. Not only did Mr.
Hangen's speech bring us to date
on world issues but also opened
for us new patterns of thought.
A reception was held in Hardy
Hall following Mr. Hangen's talk.
An arrangement of chrysanthe-
mums adorned the serving table
of lace cloth. On Tuesday, before
returning by plane to Washington,
D. C, Mr. Hangen was to complete
a tour of part of the Coast, es-
corted by Dean Johnson.
Many times as the sun sets on
Gulf Park, the music building
lights up and Don Christmas be-
gins his many hours of practice.
The results of these practices were
finally appreciated by the students
and faculty under Friendship Oak
early this October.
The concert contained a group
of songs written by Dave Bru-
beck and interpreted by Mr.
This year the Action Club has

The Secretarial Science Club
was organized as a social activity
for the members of the business
department. At the beginning of
the year, members of the club
published the annual student di-
rectory, containing names, ad-
dresses and telephone numbers of
students attending Gulf Park Col-
lege. The club also co-sponsors the
annual spring fashion revue. The
final activity of the Secretarial
Science Club is to sponsor an
early evening boat ride from Gulf-
port to Biloxi then to Ship Is-
land and back. With Miss Brock
as sponsor and Betty Isles as
president, the club will surely
have an exciting year laid out for
Christmas. Mr. Christmas' feelings
for music were impressed upon all
who watched and listened as he
played. The concert was an ex-
ample of the age old saying "Prac-
tice makes perfect," which Mr.
Christmas exemplified well.
The audience was left with a
better understanding of Mr. Bru-
beck's purpose in writing music
and a realization of Mr. Christ-
mas' superb talents.

I took a walk down the highway one night,
And viewed the world in a whole new light.
I walked and walked, oh so far —
And was almost flattened by a speeding car.

On a beautiful Sunday, Septem-

from the Gulfport, Mississippi

all the students gathered in "Fort
Massachusetts," an old fort used
in the Civil War, to sing songs
and to listen to an impromptu

Lunch followed these activities

A group of 150 very sleepy,
but very excited girls embarked

their escorts, they set out for a
fun-filled afternoon of football by
attending the Navy-Marine game.

with the girls and their dates at-
tending dinner in the commissioned
officers' dining hall. Following
dinner everyone was taken to the
Mustin Beach Officers' Club where
they were welcomed by the base
Commander to the Regimental
Ball. Two great bands and the

guests, with the evening being
completed by the selection of a
Queen's Court. Carol Craven and
her escort, Jim Abrams were
chosen "Mr. and Miss America."
On Sunday the girls and their
escorts attended breakfast and
church services together. In the
afternoon they rounded out the
weekend by attending a beach
party at Mustin Beach where
dancing and swimming were en-
joyed by all. Later that afternoon
the girls boarded their buses for
the return trip to Gulf Park with
many fond memories.

I went for a walk in the forest one day
To watch the animals all at play.

A happier sight, you never would see.
We danced and we played all the day through
Till the sun went down and the morning sprung dew.

A SACRED JOY
I pity a person that reaches out into life to find any happi-
ness. For it is only through sorrow can we find real joy. Only
the blind can see the true beauty of shapes and colors. Only
the crippled may sense the excitement of running across a
hot road on a warm summer's day. It is the childless wife
who understands the sweetness of a baby's lonely cry, and
the deaf only who realize the meaning of every word spoken.
Life is filled with joy, but it can not truly be lived until it
has something to live for.
HAPPINESS IS THE

house mothers to Hardy Recep-

beautiful Christmas tree, adorned
with lights, ornaments, and a
shiny bright star crowning the
ecerscent vision. To close the per-
fect evening there was hot choc-
olate, cookies, and the joyous
sound of familiar carols.
The following Sunday, Decem-
ber 8th, was the annual tea given
by the Student Government for
the faculty, staff, and members of
the board. All of the local min-
isters were also cordially invited.

The most exciting event of the
Yuletide Setason at Gulf Park
was the Christmas Ball . . . Held
on December 14 it was an occa-

by George Wood's Soul Band, the
affair was a success.
From the decorating of the
tree to the banquet and the Glee
Club caroling the eve before, the

I cleaned my heart out yesterday,
I forced myself to throw away
All the past, foolish hoard
Of memories and dreams
Which I'd stored.
Courageously I cleared each room
Sweeping it with Reason's own broom
Til every little corner was bare
Not even a memory was
Left lingering there,
No dreams, no cluttered
Could - have - beens.
And then I discovered
You'd crept back in.
